Colorful Food-for-All UK Prasad Distribution Center Opens in Camden Town
By ISKCON News   |  Mar 12, 2024

Food-for-All UK has opened an exciting and colorful new “Give Me Love” Prasad Distribution center in the heart of Camden Town in central London. “The FFA-UK team is presently distributing 2,500 plates of Prasad daily, and running three food banks for people in food crisis,” said FFA-UK Founder, Parasuram Das.

Camden Town is renowned for its vibrant and eclectic atmosphere attracting thousands of locals and tourists to the area making it a perfect place for outreach. “The new building is on the busiest street in the area,” noted Parasuram Das, “We are already attracting so much attention, everyone wants a photo.” The storefront is painted with bright, welcoming colors and groovy graphics reminiscent of the 1970s culture that was associated with social change and bands like the Beatles, in fact George Harrison’s face is prominent on the storefront. 

The name of the center, “Give Me Love” is in honor of George Harrison, the Beatles member who was closely associated with Krishna Consciousness and ISKCON Founder-Acharya Srila Prabhupada.  His song “Give Me Love (Give Me Peace on Earth)” reflects his spiritual journey [insert link to song and lyrics].  The name is also a reflection of his particular love for prasadam and his belief that this spiritual food puts souls directly in contact with Krishna.

In a conversation with Mukunda Das, Harrison said, “Let’s face it, if God is in everything, why shouldn’t you taste Him when you eat? I think that prasadam is a very important thing. Krsna is God, so He’s absolute: His name. His form, prasadam, it’s all Him. They say the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, so if you can get to a man’s spirit soul by eating, and it works, why not do it? There’s nothing better than having been chanting and dancing, or just sitting and talking philosophy, and then suddenly the devotees bring out the prasadam. It’s a blessing from Krsna, and it’s spiritually important…the next thing you know, they’re in love with prasadam, and eventually they walk out of the temple thinking, ‘They’re not so bad after all.’”
